I have been working on this android application for long exposure shots and want to put it on Google Play Store. Since I have included OpenCV, the application needs OpenCV Manager to run. Now, this can be demotivating for the users to download another app to run my app. So I looked around and there’s a way to do the static linking of OpenCV modules. And, it’s pretty easy too.
OpenCV Application Development With Static Initialization
You just need to add following lines in Android.mk file.
In Java, Add following in the static section of the Activity class.
That’s it. Now, the application doesn’t require OpenCV Manager to run. Although, APK size increases due to installing the modules.
P.S. Static Initialization might be slowing down the opencv processing part.
